They Call Me Gomer - JC Miller

 


5 + STARS!

ABOUT THE BOOK -

"Dear Diary, On September 3, 1982, two things happened that I'll never forget: I acquired an older sister, and I fell in real love. But tell me, what does an eight-year-old know about love?"

For nearly a decade, Hosea Felix and Gomer Williams were inseparable. She loved him from the moment she laid eyes on him. Their friendship was iron-clad until temptation rocked Gomer to her core. Somewhere along the way, she fell for another guy and traded young love for instant pleasure. Not only is Jeri Cole fine—he is a bonafide gangsta, unattainable, and off-limits. Jeri was all Gomer could think about, and the only thing she thought she wanted. Despite her big sister already laying claim to him, not much could stop Gomer from clawing at the possibility of love and diva status. Getting with Jeri felt right...but at what cost?

Gomer never backed down. She is the original bad girl—ratchet, bougie, and insatiable. Feel like you wanna dislike her? Well, get in line.

They Call me Gomer… JC Miller's sophomore spin-off novel enthralls readers with a deeply woven, emotionally heart-tugging take on the Book of Hosea. By examining rape culture, drug addiction, family secrets, and the vulnerabilities of young Black girls in pursuit of fortune and fame, this contemporary tale gives those in search of a good dra-mance all the feelings!

She will chase after her lovers but not catch them; she will look for them but not find them. Then she will say, "I will go back to my husband as at first, for then I was better off than now.  Hosea 2:7

MY THOUGHTS -
Well, this book was nothing short of amazing! Totally blew me away. There are some readers who judge my reviews by how many wow's there are - this is a 3 WOW book! This is described as "NA Urban Christian Fiction". I'm thinking I love this genre! There is nothing preachy about this story (except maybe a little to each other), this is raw, hardcore, gutsy, intense, heartfelt drama! There - how's that for a description? LOL

The character development is amazing. This one will definitely have you rooting for the "bad girl". I so so so much wanted her to turn her life around. I can honestly say, been there done that, so I could relate to these characters and their hardships. Even though they were fiction I was almost praying for them to change like I had changed.

I loved how she (at the end) was compared to Gomer from the Bible. Great idea! I loved this author's writing, so much that I looked her up (because that's what I do). I have not read the "I am Rahab" series but I am definitely adding it to my TBR list!! If anyone wants to send me these for a review - I would gladly accept!  ;-)

OK a bit of a warning - if you are expecting a pretty little, warm fuzzy Christian book - this is NOT it! Like I said... this is raw and gritty... and Fabulous! Who doesn't like a little fabulous, right?

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from RABT Book Tours & PR -  Thank You!!
